I got this in Mollusk (purple) to replace my Delta LT fleece that had started to wear out in weird places. (No, not the crotch.)
It's the same fabric as the Delta LT and serves the same general purpose, but the panels and pockets are redesigned slightly. I think the new handwarmer pocket design is more functional than the older version. The fit seems to be a bit looser than I'm used to for an Arc'teryx product, and I've owned a lot of them. It's almost like a medium and a half - not quite a large, but not as athletic-fitting as the Delta LT was. I'm 5'10" with a 41" chest and 34" waist and the medium fits with plenty of room for a base-layer. The medium Delta LT was a stretch over anything. (Stop thinking crotch.)
So far, it's been a mid-layer for resort skiing and a quick, toss-on layer for backcountry touring as well as my everyday go-to fleece for motoring around town in the truck or on a bike. Arc'teryx's thoughtful placement of pockets and seams is unmatched. My only regret - picking it up at the end of winter instead of at the beginning!
